Macs finally get an Amazon Prime video app

It has taken a while but Amazon has finally launched a native Amazon Prime Video app for Macs.

The app works mostly like its mobile counterpart. And crucially, it supports offline downloads. 

Like most streaming services, users can choose their preferred video quality settings for regular streaming and downloads. Amazon estimates that at its best setting, an hour of streaming will set you back roughly 5.8GB. For downloads, that number goes down to 2.9GB for videos downloaded at their best quality.

The app also supports macOS features including AirPlay and picture-in-picture. There's also a continuity feature that lets users pick up where they left off regardless of the device they are using.

The Amazon Prime Video app is available for Macs running macOS Big Sur and newer and you can download it here.

Now Amazon has a native Mac app for its video streaming service, all eyes are on Disney and Netflix to see if and when they would do the same.
